2011 Transition Covert (M) I built up this dream bike a years ago while I was working in a bike shop. After owning it for a couple years, I left the country for many years and it hasn’t seen any action since. I regret needing to sell it, however after a long stint away, I find that it’s a fraction too small for me now. 2011 Transition Covert frame in medium designed as an all mountain bike with 150mm travel. 160mm Rockshox Lyric RC2 DH Solo Air forks 150mm Fox RP23 rear shock Hope Pro II Evo wheelset built onto Syncros DS28 rims 9 speed SRAM x9 / shimano XT drivetrain (rear mech almost brand new when I stopped riding the bike). Avid Elixir CR Brakes, 185mm / 160mm RS Dropper Seatpost 50mm Thompson Stem + Syncros Handlebars As you can see from the pictures, the bike is in fantastic condition and it works perfectly without any noise. It will make either a great second bike for the winter or it could be a perfect full-sus for someone getting into the sport who wants a lot of bang for their buck. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

PRICE ADJUSTMENT: £1800 I'm selling this beautiful bike because im now studying at Uni and I can't give the riding all it deserves. Pretty devastated to sell considering how new this machine is but such is life. This bike isn't actually available to buy in the UK so this is pretty unique. The spec here: Frame - 2010 Norco A-Line, Medium (suits a rider of around between 5.9ft and 6.3ft), Anodized Black. Fitted with a fully serviced fox DHX 3.0 with Propedal. Fork - 2009 1.5" Marzocchi Bomber 66 RC3 38mm, cosmetic damage to the decals. All the important parts are in impeccable condition and it's my understanding that new decals are available from marzocchi should you wish. I would say that these are the best single crown forks made. They don't have the seal issues of rockshox or the flex feel you get with fox. The RC3 cartridge is brilliant; they are so easy to ride with and judge in rebound and compression. Headset is an FSA Orbit 1.5", feels solid. Wheelset - WTB Laserdisc Freeride rims built onto Shimano Saint sealed hubs (20mm front + 12mm rear axles). Both wheels have recently been trued and the hubs stripped down and re-greased by Shimano Saint test Centre. WTB Dissent 2.5 tyres, probs about halfway through their life. Brakes - Shimano Saint 203mm f&r. Back on the right. Believe you me, you'll wonder why you would ever use another brake! Drivetrain - Consists of Raceface Evolve DH cranks & BB. Apart from that its Saint. I believe the cassette is a useful 32 tooth; handy in the UK. All great condition, no need for replacement parts for a while. Jagwire housing; 9 crisp saint shifts. The rear mech is a mid-cage saint shadow. Pedals - Wellgo flats. Cosmetically quite scratched on the ends due to resting the bike. I do like the easy of pin replacement with these flats. Stem - FSA Gravity 50mm 0 rise. I would go to say that this is the best stem i've ever used/seen. That goes out to Thomson too! Handlebars - Easton EA50 Mid rise. The grips aren't great, but i'd rather leave the choice to you. They do have stylish ODI red locks that will work with any new grips. Seatpost & Saddle - Ritchley comp and a WTB silverado saddle. The seat is uncut so choice is up to you. As you can see from the pictures, the bike is in fantastic condition. Norco changed over to FSR a few years back and in 2009 the look of Norco was transformed. This bike is pretty much a refined effort, eliminating all the faults with the 09 A-Line. The 2011 A-Line is pretty much as is again. The bike was well looked after. I was friend with bike mechanics in local shops, including a shop representing Saint/FSA/WTB/Norco. Price is 1800. I can also send a few more pics if not satisfied with those above. Pick up from south Manchester only. Nick

darkalleydownhill, there are quite a few negative comments here but I thought it was brilliant! Kind of reminded me of the shimano saint adverts but without the high contrast dark colours. The editing with the anti shake box was novel not annoying. The whole film had a kind of vintage pop scene feel to it, which is a good change from the ordinary type of videos that get vod. Also when 90+% of mountain bikers in the world couldn't ride as well as that, I think its unfair to say average riding, but she railed it round the jumped berms and nailed the stepups. I say PROPS to you darkallydownhill, keep making the films!
